Vigil for Nuclear Disarmament
The new UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, signed last year by 53 nations, provides a perfect opportunity to renew the effort to abolish nuclear weapons and finally end the mortal threat to humanity these weapons pose.
For over 70 years the peoples of world have been endangered by the most destructive and indiscriminate tools of mass killing ever invented. This danger remains today, as the current confrontation between North Korea and the United States, and other international tensions, shows. Yet the United States and the other nuclear-weapons-holding powers have not signed the UN Treaty and show no signs of abolishing their nuclear arsenals.
Join us for this quarterly vigil outside the White House as we call upon the United States and all other nations to sign and ratify the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and to embrace nuclear abolition. We will have remarks from speakers, distribute literature, and raise awareness about this vital issue. Let us act to protect human life from this ultimate threat.
